Took a group of 11, all ages, and was told the latest we could be seated was 5 because they had a group of 12 coming at 6. The place was not overcrowded at 5 OR at 6. I think the problem was that they...More

Great prime rib. Not so great Reuben. One of the pricier places in town. The service is great when restaurant isn't full but spotty when busy. Only go occasionally.

It is very family oriented and the waitstaff is extremely friendly. We requested that they split a couple of our meals and they did so with a smile and didn't charge for that additional service.

After a bit of a chilly reception by the front desk person who couldn't seem to crack a smile, our waitress was friendly and johnny on the spot. Our order was quickly served. The portions were good sized and the food was tasty.
